Elmhurst School for Boys

4th March 2016 | Little Elms Blog

For this short four week half term we are focusing our attentions to the Seasons. We started with winter and the cold weather didn’t let us down. Lots of frosty mornings led to wonderful discussions about warm clothing, winter activities, hot chocolate, marshmallows and the odd visit from Jack Frost. The boys enjoyed painting on ice and playing with our small world London transport set in the ‘snow’.

The end of winter also means frogspawn, and I was able to get a particularly healthy crop this year. The boys have been captivated while watching the ‘black dots’ turn to tadpoles. One boy said, “I can’t go to lunch or playtime in case the eggs hatch and I miss them.” Once we have frogs we will be realising them back to the pond in our wood, and visiting them for years to come.

This week we focused on autumn and the harvest. We made our own bread and have been acting out the story of The Little Red Hen. It’s an old favourite and great for discussions about friends and helping each other.

Spring next week, even if the weather is not co-operating.
